The group forms a circle, linking hands. In the center of the circle is

placed on end a short log about a foot long. (A tall bottle may be used

in place of the log). By it is lying a soft playground baseball or a

yarn ball. The circle begins to rotate around the log, the object being

to keep from knocking the club over, on the one hand, but to force some

one else in the circle to knock it over. The instant it falls, the

circle dissolves and all the players except the one who knocks over the

club run, while he picks up the ball and throws it at the running

players. If he succeeds in hitting some one, the one hit is out of the

game. If he fails, he is out. So the game continues until but two

players are left.
